Tour Important Information

We walk more than one hour up a stone-paved path and there are some steep slopes. We take a hot spring bath. So we need following things:

1. shoes for walking

2. rain gear (umbrella or raincoat, just in case for the rain during walking)

3. changing clothes for hot spring bath

4. a washing towel and a drying towel for hot spring bath (you can buy a face towel for 250 yen and a bath towel for 450 yen)

We can shorten the tour time by omitting ferry cruising, ropeway, and cable cars.

(What To Expect)

We can experience our simple and basic style of life.

Like the travelers of old days, in a part of our tour, we walk on foot, going on a stone-paved path lined with cider trees and bamboo bushes, filled with nature.

It is dark inside the teahouse. Through the opened doors, the sunlight comes in and washes the wooden floors of the living space, elevated from the earthen floors. A hearth is dug in one wooden floor and we sit around the burning fire and are served with a hot sweet drink made from rice.

At the end of the tour, we relax in a hot spring. This spa is furnished with a variety of hot baths in the open air, facing the garden in the middle.

As means of transportation, we can try multiplicity of vehicles including bus, ferry, ropeway, cable car, and train.

Hakone Tour Reviews

Best Day Ever in Hakone!

Takao showed us the best day in Hakone! We were in Japan for well over two weeks and this was one of the most memorable days! It was rainy so he adjusted the schedule so we went to the Hakone museum after a tasty lunch with the locals. We also went to the best tea house and it was such a treat! Long day that we ended in the onsen. He is a wonderful guide and he showed us a perfect day that I couldn’t have shown my family on my own with the hike and these particular sights. I spend my money wisely. Hire this guy and you won’t regret it!

Michelle B.

Hi, Michelle, Kristine, Aliana and William! Thank you for your nice review. It was such a nice tour for me, too! I really enjoyed talking with you, people from the City of Lawrence. You treated me very kindly and warmly with lunch + Japanese rice wine, Hakone Yuryo spa and dinner + beer! Please keep contact with me. I hope you’ll welcome me when I visit your facebook page soon. See you on the page! Best regards, Takao Mizushima

Knowledgeable and Patient Guide

Highly Recommended! Outstanding knowledge of the area. Very patient and flexible with our needs as tourists, whether on bathroom breaks, change in attractions or extending time. We thoroughly enjoyed his company and unique way of giving information and navigating our itinerary!

Rod I.

Hi, Rod. Thank you for your kind review. I’ll always remember three of you posing surrounding the Black Egg monument with real black eggs in your hands. Beautiful Mt. Fuji welcomed you from behind. I’m happy I was able to help you in Hakone as a guide, thank you again. Best regards, Takao Mizushima

Polite and attentive

In spite of the unexpected bad weather of cold rain and wind, Takao did his best to provide convenient transportation and take us to most of the organized list of sights planned. He was very polite and attentive.

Theodore D.

Hi, Theodore and Liubou. Thank you for your nice review. I didn’t expect to get such a kind and warm words. Yes, it was a challenging day. We were in the clouds and fogs and nothing was visible. I didn’t realize we were past Amasake Chaya Tea House. I kept searching for words to explain things although I was able to see nothing around. Mr. Fuji took a day off and did not show her face. I really enjoyed talking with you. That helped me to change difficulties into happy memories. I’m happy I was able to see you from the country of Cyprus which I would have never had a chance to have connections in my life without you. Have a nice trip in Japan. Best regards, Takao Mizushima
